Methods of Resolving Conflict--The Voice of Norwegian Youth.
Nelson, Murry
This study examines the beliefs of Norwegian 16 year-olds about conflict resolution strategies. During 1990-91 over 40 high school students were interviewed in over 50 upper secondary schools throughout Norway. The interviews were conducted in English with groups of two or three students. The students interviewed had stronger English language skills and were generally among the brighter and more verbally adept students. Interviewees were asked about how they would choose to resolve conflicts in situations with other students at school, with students outside of school settings, with siblings, and about how adults choose to resolve conflicts. The study reported that Norwegian 16 year-olds view compromise as the most effective tool for conflict resolution. The youths also tend to disfavor the use of intermediaries in conflicts such as those between parents or teachers. Courts and lawyers are even less popular as intermediaries. A 9-item list of references is included. (DB)
